It's 9/11 one awesome post early in the day. Did we foget already?
My girls all in black, starting with Sarah. My small tribute to those that died, and the ones that are protecting us.

as a firefighter originally from NY, I'm not quite certain that there is any tribute to be made from showing models in black.

Is that really how you memorialize all those who died that horrific day?

9/11 is a very sad day for all Americans, even more so for those of us personally involved by the death of far too many friends and colleagues.

Glenn, well said.

I do hope that the people of this country will take time today to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice that day, never shall they be forgotten.

Fom one firefighter to another, have a safe shift.

I can't seem to do anything right in here. I too lost a friend that day and have since lost two guys I knew in the Navy fighting in Iraq. I don't have any great pictures taken in NY. Too far to drive. I won't apologies for the post. I felt like I needed to do something, anything! I person made a post. and me. 3 guys jumped me for it. I tried to get back in the fight, but told no thanks your too old. I did the best I could put up a couple of lovely ladies, more or less for the guys on ships at sea. Yes there are many that comes here to lurk since I put my portfolio up. If you took this as disrespect, maybe you should reevaluate what you call respect. It wasn't meant to be.
I thought about what happened that day for most of the day. How many in gg gave it a thought? 2 I see.

Nope, I'm sure there's a lot more than just two.
I for one was directly involved in the events of 9/11.
I lost many friends/fellow officers members of The Port Authority (whose HQ was at one of the Towers).
I was also involved in the rescue/recovery efforts at ground Zero. I've seen more dead bodies and body parts than I care to. And to this day I can still smell the stench of death and burnt flesh of that day.
And to date I'm still involved in the fight against terrorisms so go easy with the sentimental BS.
Your images were/are inapropriate for the subject.
You want to honor those who died that day and since? Cheesy pics of smiling girls in black ain't cutting it.
You want to do something for our people serving overseas? Maybe today was not the right day for those images.

Havea nice day.

I was there today to shoot the tribute lights. It was an eerie feeling seeing all the people so calm and quiet. Not the everyday New York rush.

Here is one from tonight.

I hope that you can do something right in here. I shoot glamour for a living and am still a firefighter as well. Somedays and sometimes the 2 are both a lot of fun and mix well.

Other times, and in other circumstances, as in 9-11 discussion, there is nothing glamourous or sexy in my mind about this.

So I don't want to beat you up, but to me, and some others, any memorial to the people involved in 9-11 should be more fitting than what you posted.

I actually believe you just didn't state yourself clearly here because I believe most people, on GG and elsewhere, haven't stopped thinking of that day. It may not consume every waking moment of our lives, but it's never very far from conscious thought.

What you're implying here is that you stopped thinking about that tragedy before the day was over. I sincerely hope you didn't actually mean it that way.
